Sunday is a day of rest, and that’s exact what Brooklyn photographer, Jacob Pritchard has been doing. But he’s been doing it on other people’s couches. After recieving a degree in journalism, Jacob worked at a number of newspapers in the West, including the Pulitzer Prize winning team at the Rocky Mountain News.
Jacob’s wanderlust has been active since childhood, but an ongoing American road trip led him to the amazing website, Couch Surfing, where strangers offer up their couches and beds and places to sleep. The images below reflect the people he’s met, and the places he’s slept along the way.
